In an interview granted to Gazzetta dello Sport, Giorgio Chiellini returned to the reasons for the non-qualification of the Italian team for the next World Cup

“We screwed up the first qualifying match of the season, against Bulgaria, it came too early. I had 20 minutes in my legs, the youngsters barely a game and a half of the championship. This draw compromised the whole course and we reached the decisive matches without important players. The Nazionale has an ample reservoir but absences are still paid for in a team that has good chemistry. The victory at the Euro was exhilarating, maybe we paid for that too. We could have lost against Portugal, but we had to get to this match, the defeat against Macedonia is not acceptable. »
